A head-on collision in the Tuscumbia community has claimed the life of a Thrasher High School student and a local businessman.

The two-vehicle crash happened Friday evening on County Road 1101 (Tuscumbia Road) around 9:17 p.m, said Sheriff Randy Tolar.

Tony Knight, 37, owner of Knights Heating and Air, and Alexis Hall, 17, were killed in the crash. Hall was a student at Thrasher High School and would have been a senior this fall.

Knight’s sister, Cindy Knight, was a passenger in his vehicle and was airlifted from the scene to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. She has since been released.

Tolar noted deputies were on the scene within six minutes of the 911 call. The crash remains under investigation with Investigator Torie Jumper in charge.

“This is a sad tragedy that has devastated the Tuscumbia and Booneville communities,” said Tolar.

Funeral services for Hall were held Sunday at the Thrasher High School gym.

Funeral services for Knight were held Monday at Booneville Funeral Home Chapel.
